Access IS debuts new barcode and passport readers at CARTES 2013
Reader maker Access IS has two new readers on show at CARTES 2013 - a 2D barcode reader with contactless NFC/RFID reading, and a full mpage, multi-illumination passport reader.
The LSR118 is a 2D barcode reader with contactless NFC/ RFID reading (and writing) capability for integration into access gates, ticket machines and kiosks.
It is designed to read linear and QR, AZTEC and Datamatrix 2D barcodes from smartphones, tablets and paper documents. It will also read NFC Tags 1-4 (including cards such as Topaz, Jewel, Mifare, Octopus, DESfire and Calypso.
Access designed the unit to be rugged, dustproof and water-resistant with no moving parts so it can withstand years of indoor and outdoor public frontline use.
It is also launching the OCR 640, a full page, ICAO9303 compliant, multi-illumination passport reader. It captures UV and IR images, as well as the full page of a passport or an ID card in colour.
In a simultaneous single action the reader also decodes the machine readable zone (MRZ) and processes eData, including the holder’s image, from the embedded chip from e-passports. The unit will also crop and extract the cardholder’s photograph on any type of photo ID.
